IRO-bot is the hidden track on the 2002 album The Second Stage Turbine Blade. It plays after a period of silence on either Track 10 ("God Send Conspirator" on the 2002 original release) or Track 13 ("Everything Evil" (demo) on the 2005 re-release). On the live electric version played at Neverender, the song has a slightly altered structure and lyrics.

This song is later reprised on the track "21:13".

The line "the useless mend the fixed..." is referenced in the song "The Broken" on the album Year Of The Black Rainbow.

Lyrics Edit

In our days we’ve mourned insignias
The passing glance unstamped
We've rendered ourselves powerless, unfortunate
The useless mend the fixed
And on every hour it detonates
My courage goes unlooked
The ride home through perilous
The land it goes, I will

You've been a bad boy
You broke all the rules
You've been a bad boy
You'll get yours paid in full

IRO-Bot will never die
My Robot will never die
You look down but far from out
And the paper reads: "You lose"
IRO-Bot will never kill

A favor Captain, a word with you
My systems gone and lost its mind
My right eye has done shed a tear
My gun I've left behind
Will systems take me home and dissemble me?
Will I be terminated with you near?
Alongside the others that I hold so close
If I'm to be killed, then when? by whom?

You've been a bad boy
You broke all the rules
You've been a bad boy
You'll get yours paid in full

IRO-Bot will never die
My Robot will never die
You look down but far from out
And the paper reads: "You Lose"
IRO-Bot will never die...
